Ask me what my dream weekend was ten years ago and I would have said, sipping cocktails and eating copious amounts of bad food with my friends, on a beach in Ibiza.

Ask me now and my answer would be: sleep, food and sitting in silence (in a hot bath). Heaven right? Well, Heaven is only an hour away, at Encounter Bay.

One of our Adelady contributors is Lisa. She’s the creator of Mind Heart Body and this September she’s running her next Wellness Retreat. Oh, I get tingles at that word — “retreat”!

It’s not just a detox retreat, it’s a whole lot more. It includes yoga, meditation, facials, group fitness, silence, food AND sleep. Did I mention silence?! It also features workshops on personal development, self esteem and positive thinking.


All too often us girls feel guilty for taking time out of our lives. Whether it’s work or family responsibilities, we feel that our families would fall apart without us. But I think, to be a better Mum, wife or friend, it’s important to look after yourself. It’s selfish not to! Many women replenish their loss of energy through quick fixes – we drink wine, eat sugary foods (guilty!), or go on crash-diets, (which we end up failing.)


May 21- 22, the Mind Heart Body Wellness Retreat gives you the opportunity to relinquish your worldly responsibilities and focus on you, in a healthy non-crash-diety kind of way!

Run by a team of qualified health professionals, they offer nourishing food, cooking classes, facials, personal training, yoga programmes, meditation workshops, and peace and quiet to provide you with the opportunity to recharge.

“You are your greatest and most valuable asset – invest in you and realise the benefits of taking care of your whole self”, says Lisa.
